Severe flooding inundated the Oklahoma City area following drenching storms on Thursday.

Flash Flood Warnings were in effect throughout Thursday, June 7, for cities in Oklahoma, including Oklahoma City, Edmond and Midwest City, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

The heaviest rain bypassed the Oklahoma City airport. There are some radar estimates that are more than 4 inches in locations just north of the city, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.

"Remember never to drive through flooded roads; doing so can put your life and the others in your car in danger," Pydynowski said.

Drier weather is expected to return by Friday night and continue into Saturday.
